The Bears are now 7-6, but their playoffs hopes are still slim, despite winning three straight.

Dallas fell to 6-7.

Allen Robinson caught two TD passes, and Anthony Miller hadone as Chicago tied a season scoring high. Khalil Mack had a sack. Linebacker Roquan Smith left the game with a pectoral injury on the opening drive. But the Bears took out the NFC East leaders after beating the struggling Detroit Lions twice and New York Giants in recent weeks.

Facing a top 10 defense for the third week in a row, the Cowboys once again couldn’t get their high-powered offense going.

NFL passing leader Drew Prescott was 27 of 49 for 334 yards and a touchdown. Ezekiel Elliott ran for 81 yards — his fifth straight game under 100 — and two scores.
